Two years ago today, I met my hero! Even better was that I get to call myself his mom. I will never forget the day we walked into that orphanage a couple and walked out a family. It was exciting, emotional and undoubtedly one of the scariest days of my life! I absolutely cannot believe that it's already been 2 whole years. E has changed my life not only in the obvious ways, but my whole outlook on the world. He has made me a better person and I hope everyday that I am doing everything I can to keep him happy and healthy. Here's a few photos from that special day in 2007.

First Meeting

Signing Paperwork (I still no idea what it was I was signing!)

First Family Photo

Our Tiny Guy (after we got him back to the hotel and unbundled him)

Today, as usual, we took off work and had family photos done. Then it was off to Chuck E Cheese and the Zoo.
